    Watch some Anchor testing on You Tube. I didn't buy a no name one after watching. Angles and reliefs have to be right for quick setting, Specially after the wind or current changes and the anchor has to reset by itself.

    Type in anchor testing on You Tube. Choke yourself through some of the home and professional video's. I bought a brand name anchor after that. A few degrees of angle and reliefs can make a huge difference in setting. It's it not made right, performance will suffer.

    Ended up buying a brand-name anchor. I bought a Lewmar, which is the company that owns Delta, who made the original equipment anchor. Same weight and style of my current anchor, so I'm expecting same performance. It looks great sitting in my living room (see attached), looking forward to getting it on the boat when the weather breaks.
